Drawing Angels yesterday, maybe in honor of Easter although it wasn't an intentional thought.
Wasn't that happy with any of them but to post something you get to see this one. Angels are good as with other like things nobody knows exactly what they look like so this good be an exact likeness. I did actually get outside and draw a little today, benifits of spring time. Just the trees and daffodils though which I have already posted. I was doing it in between raking leaves, alien leaves at that as we don't have that kind of tree. Also last years leaves which we raked up before the winter set but somehow someone snuck over and dropped another ton or so on the yard. I think it was my neighbor who also happens to be my brother in law. He has that kind of tree so they are HIS leaves to start with and what I figure instead of raking them he took a leaf blower and just swooshed them over into my yard. That's not even the worst because he doesn't even have a leaf blower so he must have used mine. Trying to remember if he borrowed it last fall but not sure.
Anyway my grandson was over and my wife said she would pay him to rake the leaves and he went out, maybe three, four minutes before coming back and saying he was done. Not sure if she paid him or not but I got mad about it and figured I would go and rake the leaves myself before he comes back and wants to get paid again to do the same job. I don't mind raking but my system is to take about a half hour break for every ten minutes of work. I got a big waste can full of the leaves up but after it didn't look like I had done anything so my grandson will probably still get the job again.
